Lessons in Empathy
Parents: In support of our school's focus on Teaching Empathy, we would like to remind you...
As mentioned at Open House and Parent Coffees, the PTA is asking parents to support the school's Empathy Initiative by NOT having our children wear the sweatshirts or other party-favor clothing they receive at Bar/Bat Mitzvahs or other parties TO SCHOOL
Children who are not invited to the party feel excluded when they see dozens of kids wearing these clothes at school.
The SMS House Counselors will be speaking with the students about this issue, and similar issues, to raise student awareness and teach empathy.
Please support this effort and ask your kids to enjoy their party-favor clothing OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL.
If you have any questions or comments on this topic, please contact PTA President Pam Fuehrer at email@example.com.
Thanks for your support,
SMS PTA Executive Board
